Dania is Healing at Home!

We are so thankful to God and the hospital staff that Dania sailed through surgery without any issue, and is now recovering at home! We are thrilled to have her home!!

She is taking heavy-duty narcotic pain-relievers around the clock, so we are trying to stay ahead of the pain, but she is still suffering quite a bit. She eats very little, but she is drinking enough to stave off dehydration, thank God. She seems to have split personality disorder on these meds, though, which is not surprising when you consider how little she is. She vacillates between need, whiny, and clinging to Mommy to jumping around, pestering the dog, bouncing off the walls, and throwing the mother of all tantrums. We cannot expect much of her while she is so drugged, but it makes for a very long day! Especially when you consider that we are up every 4 hours at night to force-feed her medicine that she doesn't like.

Ah, the joys of motherhood!
